“oft compared to a rat’s nest or a hair ball!”

Nothing quite typifies the Arizona desert experience, like the lone tumbleweed moving gently across its dry, desolate landscape. To honour this Arizona icon, Chandler’s city council approved the allocation of more than $100,000 of public money to build this, the world’s most expensive tumbleweed. You’ll be blown away as you take in the 10 foot tall concrete slab holding up a $100,000 ball of twisted metal, oft compared to a rat’s nest or a hair ball.

It was a little hard to find.. And not that impressive but the tumbleweed park across the street is very nice! The tumbleweed is rather small and located where the buses wait for the park and ride.

Underwhelming for sure. I was expecting something the size of a truck and it’s more the size of a basketball. Not located at Tumbleweed Park but across the street (Hamilton) at the Chandler Park and Ride bus pick-up. It’s on a green pedestal about 6 feet off the ground- middle of the bus pickup area.

Definitely not worth a visit unless you are driving right by it.
